House Speaker Michael Madigan is circulating a memo to legislative candidates spelling out how they can discuss whether Gov. Rod Blagojevich should be impeached - with talking points that compare corruption under the governor to a tumor that must be removed.
The 14-page rundown of Blagojevich's alleged "misdeeds and malfeasance" is sure to deepen the feud between the two Democrats and lend substance to talk of impeachment.
A memo sent to some House Democratic candidates, obtained Tuesday by the Associated Press, offers detailed talking points on the merits of impeachment.
"One thing we learned from the (imprisoned former Republican Gov.) George Ryan case is that we should excise a tumor when it is first discovered; not leave it in the body to continue to spread and do further harm," the memo reads.
Madigan spokesman Steve Brown said the Democratic Party of Illinois, which Madigan chairs, sent the memo to a " bunch of candidates" requesting more information about impeachment.

Why is Ryan refered to as a Republican and Blagj.....ch not? Hmm.
Rod still doesn’t understand that all deals have to be cut with Madigan. He never tried it and it will bite him in the prison khakis.
Actually, this article makes it pretty clear that Blagojevich and the house speaker are “the two democrats.”
I just noticed that it was “Republican Gov. Ryan” and only “Gov. Rod Blah-[whatever]”.

Whatever happened to Patrick “the incorruptible” Fitzgerald? Shouldn’t he be investigating the Governor. But I’m talking about fantasies here.
